Wind Tunnel Demolition

by NASA

Published 6/17/2009


Construction workers tear down NASA Glenn's Altitude Wind Tunnel, which began operations in 1944. The tunnel played a major role in aerospace history by conducting propulsion research during World War II and hosting tests in preparation for the Mercury space program. The AWT has been idle for more than 25 years and is in poor condition. Due to safety and environmental concerns, NASA Glenn is demolishing the building. Photographer: Bridget Caswell (WYLE)
